Project Global Officer (Project GO)

Overview

Project GO is a nationwide program open to all qualified ROTC students offering fully-funded opportunities in critical language education, overseas study, and cross-cultural experience. Through Project GO, future military officers develop linguistic and cross-cultural communication skills required for effective leadership for all Services in the 21st-century operational environment. Since 2007, Project GO has provided approximately 6,500 students with opportunities to study culture and 19 languages, both domestically and abroad in 33 countries around the world.

Project GO is an initiative sponsored by the Defense Language and National Security Education Office and administered by the Institute of International Education.

Project GO at Georgia Tech

Georgia Tech’s recruiting efforts have resulted in 236 ROTC students receiving Project GO scholarships to participate in overseas immersion programs, averaging 24 scholarships per year. Among these, 63% were awarded to non-GT students, and 56% were from outside Georgia. Project coordinators are dedicated to expanding the Project GO program by enhancing recruiting infrastructures to focus on ROTC units in the Southeast. The grant will allow them to expand the program to include additional languages deemed critical for national security, such as Arabic, and to make Project GO available to more ROTC cadets in the future.

Georgia Tech offers scholarships for the following Language for Business and Technology (LBAT) study abroad programs (please see program pages for detailed program information):
